This morning I woke up to a wonderful surprise – my favorite pancakes for breakfast. The best thing about these is that I can’t have them in South Africa because the cheese we use for the filling is not available in South Africa. It is similar in consistency to Ricotta but it is much more sour. A similar effect can be achieved if you squeeze lots and lots of lemon juice into it but this is a labour intensive process.
Aside from the cheese the recipe is simple:
2 cups of flour
2 cups of milk
1 tablespoon of oil
1 tablespoon of sugar
Polish cheese (twaróg) or Ricotta with lots of lemon juice
A bit of cream
One egg yolk
You mix all the pancake ingredients and fry them as you normally would. You also mix the filling and when the plain pancakes are ready you spread the filling on them, fold them or roll them and then put them back on the pan for a few minutes to warm up the filling. Then enjoy.
Then – if you are not burning calories trying to stay alive in the cold – go for a run..
